I've already proclaimed my love of foie gras in print, so you can guess what I thought of the foie gras sandwich. It was thin slices of chilled torchon topped with caramelized onions and baby greens, inside a soft sesame roll. The moist, salty smoked duck breast was also delicious, and the chicken breast with Dijon mayo was surprisingly succulent. A drizzle of extra virgin olive oil on the sandwiches tasted especially good soaked up in the bread.

Scratch also had lovely single-serving quiches inside a thin, tender pastry crust. Quiche Lorraine was quite comforting — warm, eggy, and full of herbs and thinly sliced bits of ham. Meanwhile, the mushroom quiche was all about the 'shrooms, studded with criminis and white buttons.

All in all, Scratch Pastries was a likable little pit stop for lunch or a dessert break. But the next time I'm there, I'm ordering two croissants.

Amen. I live in the "hood" and am delighted to have so charming a venue, within walking distance. It's almost like being back in Paris. Almost.

I tried Scratch the other day, not only do you get a cappuccino that is 16oz for the price of a Starbucks tall, but in my opinion, definitely better. If your not in the mood for coffee try their French traditional hot cocoa, they melt ganache to make it, do I have to say more? You got to try it, I'll be a regular there.


I tried visiting their website but it's not working. What's up with that?!


Here we are.. making plans to visit about 10 bakeries in LA.. then there is one great sounding location right under our noses!
